This weeks Designer Spotlight focuses on Steven Gray, an origami loving 3D designer from Scotland.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? I'm a Glasgow, Scotland, born sci-fi geek dad with a background in IT and an interest in technology and gadgets that goes right back to the late 1970's when all I coveted was my best friend's Merlin hand held game. I hesitate to call myself a designer. I could say my hobby is 3D design but I’ve been making things as long as I can remember, out of cardboard, paper, glue. I love origami; the process of turning a single sheet of paper into something is fascinating. Give me a few squares of paper and I'll make you an origami box!
This weeks Designer Spotlight focuses on Jeff Kim,
a native New York artist with many places he's called home, working on animated feature films.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located? I am a native New Yorker but currently living in Montreal, Canada. Before Montreal, I've lived in a variety of places: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Vancouver, Canada. I am a computer animator working on animated feature films. Growing up, I've always loved art and design, but never quite had the draftsmanship (or the patience) to actually pursue a career in those. Shapeways is giving me a huge outlet for that.
